The present part of " Hieroglyphic Texts from Egyptian Stelae, etc., in the 
British Museum," contains copies of funerary stelae and other inscribed monuments 
dating from the Xlth to the middle of the XVIIIth dynasty. 

The monuments herein published are of considerable interest, and illustrate 
several aspects of Egyptian Archaeology and Philology. Among those of special 
importance are : The funerary inscription of Antef-Aqer of the Xlth dynasty 
(Plate I) ; the unique inscriptions of the Hyksos kings Apepi and Khian (Plate 
XVI II); the four small stone slabs (trial-pieces, or foundation deposits ?) with the 
names of Queen Hatshepset, and in one case that of Senmut, the great architect 
of the Temple of Der al-Bahari (Plates XXVI-XXVIII) ; and the two funerary 
statues of Senmut and the statue of Menkheperra-senb (Plates XXIX-XXXIIl). 
No. 174 (Plates XXX-XXXII) is noteworthy because the architect is holding before 
him a fieure of Princess Neferu-Ra ; on both statues his name stands intact. 

The monuments published on Plates XXXIX-XLII are interesting as 
illustrating the worship of sacred animals, while Plates XLIIIff. shew the 
development of the custom of adding figures of the gods to the funerary stelae 
of this period. 

The drawings were made by Mr. E. J. Lambert, and the inscriptions, both 
hieratic and hieroglyphic, were copied by Mr. H. R. Hall, M.A., F.S.A., Assistant 
in the Department, who has also drawn up the descriptions of the Plates.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PLATES. 



The numbers of the objects which are not within brackets are the exhibition numbers, as given in the Guide 
to lite Egyptian Galleries {Sculpture), London, 1909. Those which are within brackets are registration numbers.

of Abydos, Upuatu, lord of Ta-tcheser, and Anubis on his hill and in the Oasis, lord of 
Ta-tcheser. These are followed by a long declaration by the deceased, eulogizing himself. The 
hieroglyphs are cut in a crude and harsh style, as are also the reliefs below. The complete 
distinction in the inscriptions between Osiris and Khentamentiu is notable. 

PLATE II. 

Lower portion of the same stele, with rude reliefs of the deceased, his wife, and family. 
The technique is peculiar, and the manner in which a shimmering effect is given to the woman's 
robes by means of zigzag lines is unusual. Xlth dynasty. H. 4 ft. i in., W. i ft. 8 in. [1628.] 

PLATE III. 

Portion of a fine white limestone stele with a funerary inscription of a certain Antef. The 

cutting of the hieroglyphs is very delicate and their colouring is well preserved. Those wishing

Early XVI II th dynasty. H. 21 in. [888.] 

Several of the offices named in the inscription as held by Teti-ti are previously unknown, and their meaning 
is not clear. 

PLATE XXVI. 

Block of fine grey sandstone on which has been cut as a trial-piece " Theban fortress of the 
mistress of the two lands, Khnemt-Amen Hatsheps " (j/c). From Der al-Bahari. XVIIIth 
dynasty. 8 in. by 7 in. [52884.] 

Presented by the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Carnarvon, 191 3. 

Block of )'ellow sandstone on which is cut in the same wa}' "Theban fortress of Maat-ka-Ra" 
(prenomen of Hatshepset). From Der el-Bahari. XVIIIth dynasty. 5 in. square. [52885] 
Presenied by the Rt. Hon. the Earl of CarJtarvon, 191 3. 



PLATE XXVII. 

Fine white limestone trial-piece, on which is carefully cut the prenomen of Hatshepset. 
On one side is a hieratic graffito in ink, dated in the 4th month of the Inundation, the 20th day. 
From Der al-Bahari. XVIIIth dynasty, gi in. by 4^ in. Very fine work. [52883.] 

Presented by the Rt. Ho?i. the Earl of Carnarvon, 191 3. 



PLATE XXVIII. 

Similar trial-piece of white limestone, with the prenomen of Hatshepset well cut. On the 

left of the cartouche is a hieratic graffito, dated the 2nd month of Growing, the loth day, and 

giving the name and titles of " The Steward of the Temple of Amen, Sen-n-mut (w.)." From 

Der al-Bahari. XVIIIth dynasty. 11 in. by 7^ in. [52882.] 

Presented by the Rt. Hon. ttie Earl of Carnarvon, 191 3. 

This contemporary record of Hatshepset's great minister and architect, Senmut, is of the highest interest. 
The spelling of the name is important as giving its full form. These trial-pieces were evidently essays for the 
cutting of the inscriptions in the great temple of Der al-Bahari. 



PLATE XXIX. 

Inscriptions on a red quartzite squatting statue of Senmut, the minister of Hatshepset, who 
bears the titles of " Great Steward of the Household and Tutor of the King's Daughter, Neferura ; 
praised of the Lady of the Two Lands." The inscriptions recount the virtues of the minister 
and the favour in which he stood with his mistress the queen. XVIIIth dynasty. H. 21 in.

PLATE XXX. 

Inscriptions on a black granite sitting statue of Senmut in Osirian form, holding the princess 
Neferura in the folds of his robe. Here he bears the titles of Governor of the Court, King's 
Sealbearer, and Only Friend. The list of names of the god Amen on the left side is interesting.

10 HIEROGLYPHIC TEXTS. 

PLATE XXXI. 

Inscriptions on the same statue continued. Here many additional titles are given : " King's 
Sealbearer, Governor of the Double House of Silver, Governor of the Double House of Gold, 
Overseer of all the Works of the King, Controlling every Office in its entirety. Governor of the 
Court, Chief of the Sealbearers, Sen-(n)-mut." In front, beneath the head of the princess, the 
titles "hereditary prince, Great Steward of the Household of the King's Daughter, Neferura." 
XVI I Ith dynasty. H. 28 in. [i74-] 

Senmut's titles as priest and Steward of Amen are not given on either of these statues. It is noticeable that 
upon them his name has not been erased. 

PLATE XXXII. 

Photographic reproductions of the statues of Senmut and Menkheperra-senb (Nos. [15 13], 
[174], and "[708]; Plates XXIX-XXXI and XXXIII). 

PLATE XXXIII. 

Inscriptions on a black granite seated statue of the hereditary prince, " knowing the secrets 
of the Palace, King's Sealbearer, beloved of the Lord of the Two Lands, Praised of the Good 
God, the Second Prophet of Amen, Menkheperra-senb," who is represented in the Osirian robe, 
and holding the sacral cord or knot. The inscription contains prayers to Amen and Horus for 
the deceased. The expression iiheiii dnkli n kher Amen, instead of the simple ultem dnkh, 
" repeating life," or maat-klieru, is unusual ; it is cut over an erasure, as the name of Amen had 
been battered out in the reign of Khuenaten, and afterwards restored. This is the case 
wherever the name of the god appears on this statue. XVIIIth dj-nast}-. H. 2 ft. 8 in. 

[708.] 

This Menkheperra-senb is the well-known minister of Thothmes III, but bears a lower priestly title than is 
given him in his tomb at Shekh 'Abd al-Kiirnah, where he is First Prophet, or High-Priest, of Amen. 

PLATE XXXIV. 

No. 374. Inscriptions on the black granite squatting statue of the prince Anebni, Master 
of the King's Weapons, with the names and protocols of Hatshepset (erased) and Menkheperra 
(Thothmes III), who is described as her brother. The inscription contains a prayer to Amen, 
lord of Karnak, Osiris, prince of Eternity, and Anubis who is within the tomb, din-ut, lord of 
Ta-tcheser. Published: Sharpe, Inscriptions, i, 56. X\TIIth dynasty. Sntt Collection, 1835. 
H. I ft. 9f in. [1131.] (fA- 51^.) 

The phrase am-ut ("in the Oasis") was probably now taken to mean "within the bandages" {sc. of the mummy). 

PLATE XXXV. 

No. 370. Part of a grey sandstone stele with commemorative inscription of a governor 
of Nubia under Thothmes III and Hatshepset (?). The latter's name is erased, as was also the

He who is within the Heart of the Good God, Mouth of the King in Khent-hen-nefer, Governor 
of the South, Chief of the people of the South," etc. From Wadi Haifa. XVIIIth dynasty.

the Hathor-cow of Der al-Bahari : " Say, O people of Thebes, noble and lowly together, every 
coming to ... . Tchesret .... to tell your desires to the Cow of Gold, the lady of happy life, the 

mistress of , the lady its guardian, may she give us a good child [in] this house,

No. 470. Upper part of a fine white limestone stele, on which is cut a scene of a king 
suckled by the Hathor-cow. Standing beneath the cow's head is another figure of a king. In 
front of the cow are flowers, and behind her the mountains of Der al-Bahari. The inscription is 
" Hathor, lady of Tchesret, within Akh-aset, Mistress of the Gods." The representation of the 
cow with the two royal figures is precisely that of the statue discovered at Der al-Bahari in 1907, 
and now in the Cairo Museum. From Der al-Bahari. Published : Naville and Hall, Dcir

of the Necropolis, Paneb, with his three sons, adoring the Snake-goddess of Western Thebes, 
Merseker. Late XVIIIth dynasty. Belmore Collection. H. 7A in. [272.] 

PLATE XLIIL 

No. 467. Limestone stele of Nebra, Scribe of the Workmen of the Necropolis, son of Pai. 
Above is the god Heru-ur, "lord of heaven, prince of the company of the gods," seated on a 
throne before an altar of offerings : behind him are four eyes and two ears. Below is the 
deceased in adoration : the inscription reads " Praise to Heru-ur, homage (Jit. smelling earth) to 
him that heareth prayers : may he give me my two eyes to .sec the way of truth and walk 
[therein]." Belmore Collection. XVIIIth dyna'^ty. H. 10 in. [276.] 

No. 498. Limestone stele of Api, shewing the deceased adoring the god Amen-Ra Ka-mut-f, 
" king of the gods " (in the form of Min). Above are a single-winged solar disk and sacred eye, 
and between the god and his worshipper is a pair of ears. Published : Budge, Guide to the 
Egyptian Galleries {Sculpture), PI. .xxi. XVIIIth dynasty. H. 8 in. [3S8.] 

These two stelae shew examples of the emblematic use of eyes and ears, the latter being intended to ensure 
the hearing of prayers by the gods. 

PLATE XLIV. 

No. 500. Limestone stele, unfinished: name not given. Above is a sacred boat with the 
hawk of Horus at the stern, and Osiris and I sis enthroned under a canopy in the middle : a king 
wearing the Red Crown stands in the bows and makes offering to the deities for the deceased. 
Below is a family group, with children offering to their deceased parents, in a rather free style. 
This scene and the funerary inscription below are incomplete. Salt Collection, 1835. XVIIIth 
dynasty. H. i ft. 8 in. [214-] 

PLATE XLV. 

No. 492. Painted limestone stele of Bak, an officer of the ship " Star in Memphis," who is 
shewn adoring Osiris with his wife; below he is seated, with a different wife, and with his father 
Ture, before a table of offerings. Two women, Mutnetchem and Tuaai, kneel at the side. 
XVIIIth dynasty. H. iiin. [368.] 

PLATE XLVI. 

No. 494. Painted limestone stele of Teta, flabellifer of the ship " Face of Ra," with his

children; below is a prayer to Osiris and Anubis. Late XVIIIth dynasty. WAthanasi 
Collection. H. i ft. 6 in. [353.] 

Hra-Rd must be the name of a ship, like Sba-m-Mennefer. See Spiegelberg, Rechnungen aus der Zcit 
Seiis I, pp. 81 fif. ; Newberry, P.S.B.A., xxxv, pp. 157, 158 ; Capart, ibid., xxxvi, p. 8. It seems to have been quite 
usual to omit a determinative after the ship's name. 

PLATE XLVII. 

No. 337. Limestone stele of Nekht and his sister Aahmes, who are shewn receiving 
offerings from his son the officer {udu) Aahmes. Pra\-er to Osiris " prince of eternity."

PLATE XLVIII. 

No. 338. Limestone stele of Rei, a priestly official connected with the feast of the Coming- 
Forth of the Sun-god, and his wife and nurse the lady Takernai. A certain Amenhetep

Osiris, "prince of eternity." XVIIIth dynasty. H. i ft. 4! in. j [310.]

from their {sic) father Amenemhat, who offers incense and pours out a libation for them.

[804. 

As in Nos. [1318] and [280], Plates XLVII and XLIX, the heads of the figures have placed upon them the 
peculiar cone which is first seen represented in the latter part of the XVIIIth dynasty. It was apparently a lump 
of perfumed grease or nard. 



Corrigendum in Part IV : PL xiv, 1. i, the sign ■¥• has been inadvertently omitted in the 

sentence (] ^ f ^ j ? ^ ^-
